    Agenda 2030: mot en hållbar framtid: En studie om svenska företags implementering av de globala målen2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: In a world that is constantly changing, where demands for working in a sustainable way regarding the environment and society are increasing, companies have no choice but to take these aspects into account. Companies can take responsibility through the three dimensions of sustainability: the economic, social and environmental dimensions, which is also referred to as Corporate Social Responsibility. Sustainability is therefore an inevitable topic of discussion. To cope with the challenges that is facing the world, UN member states agreed on Agenda 2030 on 25-27 of September 2015. This agenda includes 17 global goals for sustainable development. The implementation of this agenda in companies is, according to us, a relevant issue for companies as we claim that the business sector has a central role in the implementation of the agenda. In this study, we therefore want to describe and understand how companies in Sweden implement the Sustainable Development Goals. 

    Aim: The purpose of this study is to describe and understand how Swedish companies implement the Sustainable Development Goals in Agenda 2030. 

    Methodology: This is a qualitative case study using a hermeneutics perspective of interpretation. The empirical data consist of six semi-structured interviews with sustainability managers of each company. The study revolves around the empirical data and is therefore to be considered to have an iterative approach. 

    Conclusion: The study has shown that the sustainability work of all the companies in this study is characterized by the three sustainability dimensions. Furthermore, the companies have selected the goals that are in line with their current sustainability work and hence no significant implementation process has been experienced by the respondents representing the companies. However, the result shows that the sustainable development goals have served as a direction indicator and that a common language has been created regarding to the sustainability work.
